Chapter 22 – Chemical Coordination and Integration

You have already learnt that the neural system provides a point-to-point rapid coordination among organs. The neural coordination is fast but short-lived.

As the nerve fibres do not innervate all cells of the body and the cellular functions need to be continuously regulated; a special kind of coordination and regulation has to be provided. This function is carried out by hormones.

The neural system and the endocrine system jointly coordinate and regulate the physiological functions in the body.
